An email filter is a software application that stops unwelcome messages from entering a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux shared website hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. If you still get spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about spam emails clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with every account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the five levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if junk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
